Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0951141A2] A novel circuit that generates direct audio from a power supply that uses no power amplifier and that can provide full isolation to any impedance load. It has no power amplifier output stage and has a zero signal-to-noise ratio when there is no signal input because the circuit is designed with MOSFETS that do not conduct unless there is a signal input. <IMAGE>
